Walk a Mile 2017
The Womens Resource Centre is again holding an event called Walk A Mile in Her Shoes. Executive Director Colleen Arnold says men take part to raise money and this year even more awareness. She explains we know it’s the international men’s march to end violence against women and it’s a statement about men’s roles in ending violence and by wearing heels and acting in solidarity with women men want to show that they’ll do whatever it takes to make a safe world for everyone. Arnold adds this year instead of the march down Main Street they’re asking men to join their float in the Canada Day parade on July 1st when they can walk, ride or do both and the float will be decorated with placards and they can carry their placards and t-shirts will still be given to the men.
Pledge forms are available at the Women’s Resource Centre and they have men’s shoe sizes 9 to 14 in red high heels. For information or to have a pledge form sent to you, call 204-681-3105. Donations raised will support the Women’s Safe Haven.
